  1. How about some of us here in Colorado getting together.

    I live in the Security/Fountain area and am always up for some detecting. I know where the town (I am taking liberty with the town thing) of Jimmy Camp was located. It is right on highway 94. There is also a coal town in the area, not to mention a township South of Fountain. All are on...
  2. Question about old out houses...

    The cabin is not on modern maps, I later found it on a 1909 topo map. Not sure if it was a hunters cabin, there are other cabins relatively close that were occupied at the turn of the century. There is little surface expression due to the pine needles and such, lots of fallen and rotten trees...
  3. Forts, Camps and Emplacements Galore

    Great post! I have had dismal luck in finding anything concerning the cavalry in Colorado. What I do find is the plentiful accounts of known forts and battles. I keep hoping that I will come across a record or journal that tells about encampments and such. Like today, the military was heavy...

The meetings usually are interesting and you will make friends, but the best success would be to find...
  6. Does anyone here live n Colorado Springs?

    I saw your post in another posting. I would be willing to give you a ride, I just don't have a lot of good local places. But Old Colorado City would be a really good place. All those old houses will produce good finds, my last old house in that area turned up a couple of Indian Head pennies...
  7. New to the hobby need a buddy

    Finding places to go is a lot more difficult than finding someone to go with. That said this hobby is also about the people you meet and the friendships you develop. I live in South Colorado Springs and would be happy to meet up with others, and yes I would be willing to pick someone up...
  8. Woodland Park, Co

    Hi Will. I live in Fountain and do a lot of detecting when weather allows. I would be interested in sometime linking up with you and doing some detecting. It is always more enjoyable with a friend. Probably the most difficult aspect of this hobby is finding a place to go so networking is a...
